About

What is Sertraline?

Premature ejaculation which is defined by quick ejaculation (1-2 minutes), inability to delay or control ejaculation, and distress about the condition. There are several options for treatment. The first choice for treatment is Sertraline. Other options include numbing cream such as Lidocaine/Prilocaine (EMLA).

How does Sertraline work?

Sertraline is a medication of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. It works by increasing the amount of serotonin that neurons can use. Although it can be used for premature ejaculation, it is most commonly used to treat depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and social anxiety disorder.

What is Sertraline used to treat?

Sertraline is approved in the treatment of depression, PTSD, OCD, and panic disorder. It is prescribed off-label for premature ejaculation.

How effective is Sertraline?

For men who suffer from premature ejaculation, several studies verify that regular use of Sertraline can increase the average amount of time it takes for ejaculation to occur during sexual intercourse; however, it can take up to several weeks for the treatment to be fully effective. Statistics reveal that men who took a daily 25mg oral dose of Sertraline, gradually increasing the dose to 100mg over a period of six weeks, on average enhanced their ejaculatory interval by approximately 16 minutes. Correspondingly, reports of sexual satisfaction for the men, and their partners, also increased as a result of using Sertraline.  

How long does Sertraline take to work?

In most cases, it can take several weeks before the full effects of Sertraline are felt in delaying premature ejaculation. Using evidence from respective studies, most men experienced the most significant improvement in ejaculation latency after four weeks of treatment, although its effects can be felt in the first use.
